Sylvester Lewis

Sylvester Lewis (October 19, 1908 in Kansas City, Missouri – 1974 in New York City) was an American jazz trumpeter.

Lewis played locally as a college student in Kansas City in the 1920s. His first major tour was with a traveling revue called Shake Your Feet, where he met Herbie Cowens; he then joined Cowens’s own group, playing at the Rockland Palace in New York City in 1928. He also recorded with Jelly Roll Morton in New York. After a stint with Aubrey Neal (1929–30), Lewis joined Claude Hopkins’s band, playing with him from 1930 to 1936 and recording with him extensively between 1932 and 1935.

After leaving Hopkins, Lewis performed in Billy Butler’s orchestra for the theater show Rhapsody in Black and played in Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake’s Shuffle Along in 1941. He led his own band for troop tours of the Pacific during World War II, and recorded with Roy Eldridge in 1946 after his discharge. He began studying the Schillinger system in the late 1940s, but gave up music entirely after 1949 and spent the rest of his life working for the New York City Subway.

Lilpop, Rau i Loewenstein

Die Fabryka Towarzystwa Akcyjnego “Lilpop, Rau i Loewenstein” (auch als Zaklady Mechaniczne “Lilpop, Rau i Loewenstein”, Towarzystwo Przemysłowe Zakładów Mechanicznych “Lilpop, Rau i Loewenstein” oder Société industrielle “Lilpop, Rau & Loewenstein” bezeichnet; deutsch: Mechanische Werke AG “Lilpop, Rau und Loewenstein”) war bei Kriegsausbruch 1939 der größte Industriebetrieb Warschaus und einer der größten und ältesten Polens. In der Maschinenfabrik wurden neben Turbinen, Motoren, Dampfmaschinen und Pumpen auch Fahrzeuge für Eisen- und Straßenbahnen sowie Omnibusse, LKW, Militärfahrzeuge und PKW der Marken Opel, Chevrolet und Buick produziert.

Im Jahr 1844 hatte der aus einer aus Österreich eingewanderten Familie Lilpop stammende Stanisław Lilpop eine Landwirtschaftsmaschinen-Produktion (das Unternehmen firmierte 1894 unter seinem Sohn als Fabryka i Skład Maszyn i Narzędzi Rolniczych W. Lilpop und hatte seinen Sitz in der Warschauer Ulica Swiętojerska 10) gegründet. 1865 erfolgte – gemeinsam mit dem Bankier Wilhelm Rau – die Übernahme der bereits 1818 gegründeten Maschinenfabrik des englischen Kaufmanns Thomas Evans und des Metallspezialisten Joseph Morris, das nach Ausstieg von Morris von den vier Evans-Brüdern (Thomas, Andrew, Alfred und Douglas) unter der Firma Bracia Evans (Gebrüder Evans) geleitet wurde. Das übernommene Unternehmen firmierte zunächst als Warsztaty Budowy Wagonów “Lilpop i Rau” (gegenüber deutschen Geschäftspartnern als Waggonfabrik von Lilpop, Rau & Comp. bezeichnet). Nach dem Einstieg des aus Belgien stammenden Seweryn Loewensteins im Jahr 1866 erfolgte die Umfirmierung in AG Lilpop, Rau i Loewenstein. Bald beschäftigte die Firma 700 Arbeiter und Angestellte.

Von 1873 bis 1875 baute das Unternehmen die Weichsel-Eisenbahnbrücke an der Warschauer Zitadelle. In den 1880er Jahren wurden einige kleinere Produzenten in Russland übernommen, um die Präsenz auf dem dortigen Markt zu stärken. Niederlassungen wurden in St. Petersburg, Moskau, Kiew, Odessa, Tiflis und in Baku eröffnet. Ab 1881 befand sich das Unternehmen in der Ulica Smolna im Warschauer Stadtteil Powiśle. In den Jahren 1888 und 1890 wurden GMA-Dampfmaschinen bei der Görlitzer Maschinenbauanstalt und Eisengießerei AG angekauft. Am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts wurden bereits rund 1.300 Arbeiter beschäftigt-

Das Warschauer Fabrikgebäude in der Ulica Bema 65 entstand um 1910. Es wurde – angelehnt an mittelalterliche Architektur – aus rotem Backstein errichtet und ist ein Beispiel für Warschauer Industriebauten der Zeit. Vor Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges waren bei LRiL rund 2000 Personen angestellt. 1915 wurde ein Teil der Produktion in die Ukraine ausgelagert. 1939 beschäftigte LRiL 3900 Mitarbeiter. Die Warschauer Fabrikanlagen – vor allem die Waggonfabrik – wurden im Zweiten Weltkrieg fast vollständig zerstört. Nur Teile der Gebäude in der Ulica Bema sind heute noch erhalten und dienen als Sitz verschiedener Firmen im Dienstleistungs- und Kunstbereich.

Bei Lilpop, Rau i Loewenstein entstanden Fahrzeuge für den Schienenverkehr; Straßen- wie Eisenbahnen. Für die Direktion der Warschauer PKP wurde der Hechtwagen sowie der Antriebswagen (polnisch: Wagon Motorowy) SBix Nr 90090 (unter anderem Baujahr 1936) montiert. Außerdem entstanden hier die Straßenbahnwagen Typ C (1925, ein Nachbau der Typ A), Lilpop II (Baujahr unter anderem 1929) und Lilpop III (Baujahr unter anderem 1939).

Der vom Unternehmen ko-produzierte Luxtorpeda wurde ab 1934 zwischen Łódź und Warschau, ab 1936 zwischen Krakau und Zakopane und ab 1939 zwischen Warschau und Posen eingesetzt. Bei LRiL wurden auch Pullmann-Wagen (polnisch: Wagon Pulmanowski) der Klassen I, II und III (Baujahr unter anderem 1929) produziert. In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Posener Unternehmen Cegielski und den Zieleniewski-Fabriken in Sanok und Krakau konstruierte LRiL die EZT (Elektryczny Zestaw Trakcyjny), einen elektrisch angetriebenen Passagierzug, der erstmals am 15. Dezember 1936 auf der Strecke vom Warschauer Hauptbahnhof nach Otwock eingesetzt wurde.

Bedeutend war auch die PKW-Produktion. Das Unternehmen erhielt am 23. Juni 1936 eine Konzession des Ministeriums für Industrie und Handel (poln. Ministerstwo Przemysłu i Handlu) für die Produktion von Fahrzeugen der Marken Opel P4 (genannt Osiołek, deutsch: Esel), Opel Kadett der Typen I und II, Olympia sowie für verschiedene PKW-Typen von Chevrolet (Master, Imperial und ein Sedan Taxi) und Buick (Buick 41 und Buick 90) in Lizenz. Damit wurde LRiL zu einem Wettbewerber der Państwowe Zakłady Inżynieryjne (PZInż). Aufgrund der bestehenden steuerlichen Anreize für die Käufer nun inländisch produzierter Lizenzfahrzeuge und der kostengünstigen Massenproduktion konnten die Preise von PZInż oftmals unterboten werden. So kostete der Chevrolet Master mit einem 3,5-Liter-Motor im Jahr 1934 noch 12.500 Złoty, 1938 bereits nur noch 7640 Złoty – abzüglich einer 20 %-Steuergutschrift für private Käufer. Etwa zur gleichen Zeit (1935) kostete ein polnischer Fiat 518 zwischen 8900 und 12.500 und 1938 nur noch zwischen 9200 und 9640 Złoty – ebenfalls vor dem privaten Steuer-Abzug. Trotz Anweisung des Ministerpräsidenten Felicjan Sławoj Składkowski an staatliche Stellen, den polnischen Fiat zu kaufen, setzte sich der moderne Chevrolet (mit 6-Zylinder-Motor und Einzelradaufhängung in der Luxusversion) durch. 1937 produzierte PZInż 2416 Fahrzeuge und LRiL bereits 3700 Exemplare. 1938 war der Unterschied noch größer – 4680 Fahrzeuge bei LRiL und nur 2920 bei PZInż. In kleinen Mengen wurde bei LRiL auch der Fiat 1500 gebaut, der zwar moderner und ausgereifter als der 518 von Polski Fiat war, sich aber wegen des hohen Preises nicht durchsetzen konnte.

Die am 23. Juni 1936 erteilte Konzession betraf auch die Produktion von Opel Blitz Bussen und Lastwagen von GMC in Lizenz. So wurden neben dem Autobus Chevrolet 183 (in Zusammenarbeit mit Zakłady Przemysłowe Bielany S.A.) in den Jahren 1937 bis 1939 auch der Lieferwagen Chevrolet 112 und die Lastwagen Chevrolet 121, Chevrolet 131 und Chevrolet 157 montiert. Im Krieg entstand der als Kubuś bezeichnete, gepanzerte Mannschaftstransporter, der auf dem Chevrolet 157 basierte. Er wurde im Untergrund für die polnischen Einheiten beim Warschauer Aufstand gefertigt. In Lublin begann LRiL eine LKW-Fabrik zu errichten. Der durch den Krieg unterbrochene Bau wurde später fortgesetzt und diente der bis in die 2000er Jahre produzierenden Fabryka Samochodów Ciężarowych als Motorenwerk.

Popol Vuh

ФРГ ФРГ

Kosmische

Einsjäger und Siebenjäger — пятый альбом группы краут-рока Popol Vuh, первоначально изданный в 1974 году.

В этот период Popol Vuh выпускала один классический альбом за другим, и Einsjäger & Siebenjäger не стал исключением. Здесь группа ужалась до своего ядра, тех музыкантов, которые будут составлять сердцевину группы на много лет вперед — это Флориан Фрике, Даниель Фихелшер и Джог Юн. Фихелшер стал оказывать большее влияние на видение Фрике, что только обогатило творчество группы.

На альбоме стало больше фортепианных переборов Фрике и спейс-роковой электрогитары Фихелшера с восточными влияниями в рамках блюзовой фразировки. Пять коротких композиций на первой стороне являются лишь подготовкой к психоделическому заглавному треку, занимающему всю вторую сторону. Он содержит этническую перкуссию, фортепиано, пульсацию и гипнотические репетативные напряженные гитарные партии, вокал великолепной Джонг Юн и продолжительные импровизации. Этот, один из самых красивых альбомов Popol Vuh 1970-х годов, стал вершиной их фирменного умения сочетать красоту и свободу композиции.

Группа находится в середине своего второго периода (первый был экспериментальным, второй — более симфоническим и позднее — более ориентированный на эмбиент, главным образом, по причине саундтреков к фильмам Херцога), и этот пятый альбом близок к художественной вершине группы.

Einsjäger & Siebenjäger представляет собой характерный альбом лучших лет Popol Vuh. Как обычно, группа предлагает очень умиротворяющую, гуманную музыку, направленную на чудесные, тихие, созерцательные моменты жизни. Альбом вызывает внутренние пейзажи сознания, как будто возникающие перед закрытыми глазами. Первый трек (позднее записанный вновь на альбоме Nosferatu) содержит мистический повторяющийся гитарный рисунок, сыгранный как будто на ситаре. «King Minos» (также включенный в Nosferatu) показал группу, играющую прогрессивный рок с плывущей и ласкающей гитарной игрой Фихелшера. Все композиции в целом построены по единой схеме, где на первое место время от времени выходит изящное, дивное фортепиано Фрике.

Все треки написал Флориан Фрике, кроме треков 1, 3, которые написал Даниель Фихелшер. Тексты Соломона в переработке Флориана Фрике.

Blestyashchiye

Blestyashchiye (Russian: Блестя́щие; IPA: [blʲɪˈsʲtʲæɕːɪɪ], lit. the shining ones) is one of the first and most enduring all-girl singing groups in Russia.

Originally Blestyashchiye consisted of three girls: Olga Orlova, Polina Iodis and Varvara Koroleva. In 1996 Irina Lukjanova and Janna Friske joined the group when Varvara Koroleva left the group right after the release of their first album Tam, Tol’ko Tam (Russian: Там, только там, English: There, Only There). Featuring original arrangements, lovely lyrics, and artistic music videos, Blestyashchiye became quite popular. They went on tour across the country, and they were highly praised. There, Janna became an instant success with her excellent vocal abilities and superb dancing skills. In 1997 they released the album Tam, Tol’ko Tam (Remixes). In 1998, Polina Iodis left the group and the three remaining girls continued to work together. In August 1999, X Ksenia Novikova joined Blestyashchiye. With the new lineup, Blestyashchiye released their second album Prosto Mechty (Russian: Просто мечты, English: Only Dreams). This album included such musical best sellers, „Gde Zhe Ti Gde?“, „Oblaka“, and „Cha, Cha, Cha“.

They released a new album in 2000, titled O Lyubvi… (Russian: О любви…, English: About Love…). The album featured ten new songs, one of which, „Ciao Bambino“, was named the most „provocative“ clip of year. The hit „Za Osen’yu Pridet Zima“ was another single from O Lyubvi…. The group won many awards that year, and went on tour in cities of Russia, the countries of the Near abroad, and abroad. Soon Olga Orlova (the front member and the songwriter of the songs that made Blestyashchiye famous) became pregnant and left the group. The success of the group was later proven by Belym Snegom (By White Snow), a greatest hits collection, including „Belym Snegom“ and „Dolgo Tebya Zdala“. The video clips for the songs at the time were in „Russian Top Ten“ and „Top-20“ on MTV. In June 2001, Yulia Kovalchuk was finishing up her 10th and 11th years of schooling, after which she planned to leave Moscow and return to her hometown, Volgagrad, to take a year’s vacation. Her friends had told her that Blestyashchiyes‘ producers were going to be in attendance at the school’s year-end recital. The rumor was that „Blest“ was hoping to include more dance in their shows, and thus they were looking for new talent. And the story goes, Julia was waiting to go onstage for her performance, when a Blest producer happened to pass by. The producer took an instant liking to Yulia, and asked if she could sing. Eventually they went to a studio, where she sang for them, and left her contact information. She went home as planned, for her much needed rest. On July 31, she received a call that she would need to be in Moscow on August 1(the next day), to start her new career as a member of the group Blestyashchiye. Yulia did not receive a very warm reception in Moscow. She was 18, and she was taking her first step into a pop group, whose members were struggling with finding an identity for the group, as well as their own survival. Yulia’s first performance in Blestyashchiye came at the recording of „Pesna Goda“ on September 5, 2001. Yulia described the occasion as „I was in the right place at the right time.“ Janna Friske is considered the leader of the group, publicity director, and oversees that girls communicate „daily“. In their ‚free time‘ the four members wrote songs for their next album, Za Chetyre Morya (Russian: За четыре моря, English: Beyond Four Seas) (2002). The first hit from the album was the memorable „A Ya Vse Letala“, the video played continuously on all music channels. In 2003 Irina Lukyanova became pregnant and left the group. Later on Blestyashchiye was joined by the former figure skater Anna Semenovich.

Their fifth studio album Apel’sinoviy ray (Russian: Апельсиновый рай, English: Orange Paradise) (2003) was an extraordinary success and left its mark on the year. The last hit song off the album, „Novogodnaya Pesnya“, became a true anthem that goes to the heart of winter holidays at the year’s end, and the earlier hit song „Apelcinovie Rai“ the summer anthem. Blestyashchiye was one of the first girl-groups in Russia, yet they still have a firm hold on the leading position among other female groups. In 2003, after the release of Apelcinovie Rai, Janna Friske left the group to embark on her solo career. On April 1, 2004 Friske was replaced by Nadia Ruchka. When asked the question how she joined group Blestyashchiye, Nadia answered so: „It is very simple. My friend called and told that Blestyashchiye wanted me to audition. My previous band just had just broken up. And ‚Blest‘ was searching for new members. But was on first of April (April Fools‘ Day), and I mistook the offer as a joke. Therefore I said: ‚Please, you will not joke. I do not wish to listen to such silly jokes. You will come home, and we shall talk.‘ At first I joined in group on a trial period. I have started to go a little with girls by tour. Stepped onstage in two-three numbers. Then I began to participate in recording songs.“ In the group, Nadia was well accepted. „If there are any questions, we find it easy to communicate,“ the singer tells. „Everyone understands, the work is complex. Now the trial my period has ended, therefore I work on full power.“ In 2005 the group released their 8th album, Vostochniye skazki (Russian: Восточные сказки, English: Oriental Fairytales) featuring a duet with the famous Iranian singer Arash. They also released the singles „Palmy Parami“, „Kak Zvezda“, „Agent 007“, and the earlier mentioned „Novogodnyaya Pesna“.

In March 2007, Anna Semenovich left the group to pursue a solo career, and was soon replaced by Anastasia Osipova. In summer 2007, amid rumors of pregnancy and a solo career, Kseniya left the group. At the 2007 Russian Music Awards, it was announced that Natalia Friske was the newest member of Blestyashchiye. The announcement was made by her sister, Janna Friske, during a performance by Blestyashchiye, including present and former members, while they performed a medley of Blest hit songs, live. Yulia Kovalchuk, whose contract with Blestyashchiye expired on December 31, 2007 has left the group to start her solo career. Under contract with Martin Music, she is expected to release her first single in February, 2008. There may be a music video for it in the spring, and her debut album is supposed to be released in fall 2008. On February 5, 2008, the group announced their newest member, Anna Dubovitskaja.

Turenne, Corrèze

1 French Land Register data, which excludes lakes, ponds, glaciers > 1 km² (0.386 sq mi or 247 acres) and river estuaries.

Turenne is a commune in the Corrèze department in the Limousin region in central France. It is characterised by its height and unique position on top of a cliff.

It is one of the most beautiful villages of France (along with 148 others, including neighbouring Loubressac, Autoire, Curemonte and Carennac). It also has a well-known castle.

Turenne sits atop the Martel Causse, a limestone formation which now supports rich forests as well as intricate caves. The region is quite hilly, and is cut through by the Dordogne and Vézère rivers, which provide nearby activities like canoeing.

The local economy is primarily agricultural, with a fair amount of tourism. The region is known for its excellent produce, including walnuts, mushrooms, truffles, and foie gras.

The first lords of Turenne appeared in the 9th century. The town became a veritable feudal state after the Crusades and one of the great fiefs of France in the 14th century. From the Middle Ages to the 18th century, the viscount of Turenne had complete autonomy. Until 1738 the sheriffs, despite honoring the French king with simple tributes, were free of taxation and acted as true sovereigns; convening the Estates General, raising taxes, coining money, and ennobling. The Viscounty formed a state within a state. Thus, when the king banned tobacco (introduced in Aquitaine in 1560), the measure did not apply in the viscounty.

The fiefdom of Turenne occupied a territory bounded by three provinces and three bishoprics. Part of the Périgord Noir (Black Périgord), the fiefdom was adjacent to Lower Limousin and Quercy. It controlled the transfer of livestock between the plateaus of Quercy and Limousin, At its largest in the 15th century, it spanned from around Meymac or Lapleau to the north-east, Terrasson to the west, and Gramat to the south. At that time, the major fortified cities of the Viscount were Argentat, Servieres, Beaulieu, Gagnac, Martel, Saint-Cere, and Turenne; other walled cities included the bastides of Bretenoux and Puybrun, the cities of Carennac, Vayrac, Curemonte, Meyssac, and Collonges. There are now about 100,000 inhabitants in the entire region, divided into 18,500 „feux“, 111 parishes, 1200 villages, and many monasteries.

Turenne has seen a succession of four families of Viscounts. From the 9th century to the thirteenth, the Comborn, from the valley of the Vézère (and who had actively participated in the Crusades and Anglo-French wars) obtained extensive privileges from the kings of France. Then, during the first half of the 14th century, the Viscounty was taken over by the Comminges, Pyrenées feudal lords, before being transferred for 94 years to Roger de Beaufort from which came two Popes of Avignon, Clement VI and Gregory XI. This family had two Viscounts: Roger William III of Beaufort and Raymond de Turenne XIII, and two viscountesses names Antoinette de Turenne and Eleonore de Beaujeu. Then, from 1444 to 1738, the Viscounty became the possession of the family of La Tour d’Auvergne. In their heyday, Henri de la Tour d’Auvergne, co-religionist and companion-at-arms of King Henry IV, became Duke of Bouillion and prince of Sedan. His son Henry, Marshal of France, received the nickname „The Great Turenne.“

Under La Tour d’Auvergne, the Viscounty lasted until the Reformation. Calvinism was spread by the boatmen of the Dordogne throughout the region. In 1575, after St. Bartholomew, Henri de la Tour engaged with Henri of Navarre and Turenne became a hotbed of religious wars and disorders of the Fronde.

On 8 June 1738, Turenne was sold to Louis XV to pay the gambling debts of Charles Godfrey, the last of the Viscounts of La Tour d’Auvergne family. Thus ended the quasi-independence of this last French stronghold. The Viscounty’s subjects became subjects of Louis XV and were forced to pay taxes. The king also ordered the dismantling of the fortress of Turenne. As of the Revolution, Turenne was more like a seat of a royal provost.

Under the French Revolution, to follow a decree of the Convention, the town changed its name to Mount Franc (the name was restored to Turenne in ??).

Turenne is classified as one of The Most Beautiful Villages in France.

Sanganakallu

Sanganakallu (Kannada: ಸಂಗನಕಲ್ಲು ) is an ancient village settlement from the Neolithic period (circa 3000 BC). It is a complex of hills (peacock hills) and is approximately 8 km from Bellary in Karnataka]. It is one of the earliest village settlements and the largest village complex in South India, spread over 1,000 acres. Since 1997, archaeologists from the Karnatak University and Cambridge University have been studying this archaeological site.

Sanganakallu was the first established village[citation needed] in South India. The first settlers who established the village traded stone tools among the Neolithic people. By around 2000 BC, this region was the largest stone tool producing centre in South India[citation needed]. By 1500 BC, cemeteries were created to bury the dead[citation needed]. Different types of burial structures have been found[citation needed]. now its on d way to moka from bellary.

At Sanganakallu the people who settled were the earliest agriculturists, they cultivated small millets and pulses, they kept sheep, cattle, they had separate areas for dumping dung (ash mounds), has the earliest houses of mud and stone.

The Neolithic rock art can be seen on boulders, hand percussion marks of rituals and social ceremonies (ringing rocks). Manufacture stone tools on a large scale shows the rich Neolithic culture and skills.

Nicaraguan general election, 1967

A general elections were held in Nicaragua to elect a president and parliament on February 5, 1967.

Fernando Agüero led the Conservative presidential slate again in the 1967 presidential contest and was the sole nominee of the National Opposition Union (Unión Nacional Opositora – UNO) coalition. The Conservatives (then at the apogee of their popular support) and their Social Christian and Independent Liberal allies mobilized widespread popular opposition to the first presidential candidacy of National Guard head Anastasio Somoza Debayle. Although UNO lost the presidency to the Liberals the PPSC did win one seat each in the House and Senate”.

In retrospect, the election of 1967 was the zenith of the Somozan political and electoral apparatus. From that time on, the younger Somoza took personal charge of everything, excluded the principal power groups of the Liberal Party, and started a gradual decline in the electoral efforts which eventually lost all pretense at being democratic at the domestic level”.

(*) Plus one life-time Senator by virtue of his being ex-President of the Republic. (**) Including one seat for PPSC.
